A Yeti Storm!

Let downs and bull-cocky releases from 09 in the humble opinion of this Yeti in particular. 3.0s-1.0s
1A Camp
Colonia


I am an avid fan of The Cardigans, thus, Nina Perssons and anything she touches I'll at least give a shot. Her side project, ACamp put out their self titled debut in 2004 and the fuzzed out folk rock of Nina and co. was a solid, crafty bit of songs easy to lose yourself in. The Baroque pop and roots rock mix of 'Colonia' -- not so much. It's clunky, the choruses never find their stride, and really, half the album is boring to come back to a second time. :'( 3.0
2Japandroids
Post-Nothing


I don't get it...and goddammit I'll just listen to it more. 3.0...for now
3Jay-Z
The Blueprint 3


4 awesome singles and a remainder of filler. But 'Run This Town' and 'Empire State of Mind' are baller. 3.0
4Kid Sister
Ultraviolet


years of delay and mounds and moounds of hyper later -- it's alright. 3.0
5 Lily Allen
It's Not Me, It's You


Average songs with lyrics that try too hard to be life affirming and clever. I miss the biting of "Knock Em Out' and the fancy-free of 'LDN'.
6 The Most Serene Republic
...And The Ever Expanding Universe


The band at the height of over stuffing doesn't stuff quite enough in on their electro-rock 3rd album. 3.0
7The Twilight Sad
Forget The Night Ahead


forget the album ahead, dudes, remember when you made 'Fourteen Autumns and Fifteen Winters'? 3.0
8We Were Promised Jetpacks
These Four Walls


That other Scottish band from the same label with Frightened Rabbit and The Twilight Sad sounds like a worse off mix of the two, go figure. 3.0
9 White Rabbits
It's Frightening


Britt Daniels produces an extremely promising bands follow up to a stellar debut -- that pretty much sounds like a dumbed down version of said debut. Minus the immediacy and sense of purpose the first set of songs had...boo. 3.0
10Silversun Pickups
Swoon


bboorrriinnggg -- 2.5
11Deer Tick
Born On Flag Day


These dudes are from Rhode Island, so am I, I love supporting local acts, plus their debut 'War Elephant', albeit scattered, was promising. This is 40 minute of generic 'stand up and do...something' acoustic music.
12Patrick Wolf
The Bachelor


I dunno, this album really pissed me off. 2.5
13Peter Bjorn and John
Living Thing


Everyone needs a flop I guess. An album filled of mostly clunkers and a few decent singles.
14...And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead
The Century Of Self


Again: Radio Rock + Booze worthy chanting + bad drumming + Strings + AFI - Emo x U2 = 'The Century of Self'
15Green Day
21st Century Breakdown


So I really like 'American Idiot' and still do, this is like 'American Idiot'-lite. So instead of all the singles being everywhere and me having to kinda crack a smile -- now I just wanna hurl. 2.0
16U2
No Line On The Horizon


AARRGGGHHH!!! like 'Achtung Baby' my ass! 2.0
17Amanda Blank
I Love You


Sorry Chica, Peaches already did it, and a *lot* better/dirtier than you. And I fucking hate Peaches. 1.5
18The Sounds
Crossing The Rubicon


I was given this by a friend, under the impression it sounded like a "heavier, edgier Cardigans". No. 1.5
19Weezer
Raditude


The album cover is cool as hell, but, seriously? *This* is a Weezer album now? 1.5
20Asher Roth
Asleep In The Bread Aisle


more like Floating In The Toilet Bowl - 1.0
